Lei and I are SO EXCITED to be bringing back the ATC Desktop Calendar swap for 2015! – This is a cute idea for you OR great to give as a gift!
Description: ATC Calendar Pages
Quantity: You will be making a total of 12 identical ATC cards for the month you choose.
* The calendar portion will measure 1.25 x 1.5 inches and placement of that calendar on the ATC is your choice. The rest of the card can be designed/decorated any way you want within the guidelines of the "special design notes" using your favorite SG collection and embellishments. I will provide you with a correct size calendar sheet for you to print and cut for your cards.
** Special design notes - the calendar is designed to be oriented in the landscape position. Please leave the top 1/2 inch of the card free of embellishments so holes can be punched for the book rings. (See photos below) DO NOT PUNCH your own holes. We will do that for you so that all calendar cards will be uniform and fit the base. We will make your base and ship it to you along with the cards being swapped out. YOU WILL NEED TO PROVIDE your own rings (don't mail the rings – just hang onto them!)

Standard size ATC is 3.5 x 2.5, please use a good base card-stock and provide at least 2 layers of card-stock. Use a minimum of 2 embellishments and/or techniques. Remember to sign and date the back of your card!
Sign up: October 24th
Due IN Hand to me: November 24th
These need to be in my hands no later than November 24th. I will swap them out within a week so we can beat the beginning of the holiday mailing frenzy. If all are received early, they will be swapped out at that time. Again, would like to get them swapped out asap to avoid the holiday mailing rush!!
Place your 12 ATC cards in a plastic zip-lock baggie to prevent any possible water damage. Include a SASE with at least the same amount of postage as it took to mail to Carla + 2 additional stamps. All unused postage will be returned.
Please feel free to PM me with any questions you have. This is on a first come, first served basis, so sign up quickly!! IF BY CHANCE we do not get 12 people to sign and you would like to take 2 months (24 cards, 12 each),PM me and let me know you are willing, if need be.
As you call out in this thread which month you want, I will edit this post to reflect who has which month and which months are still available. Again, first come (call out) gets first dibs on a particular month. Once you see your name on the list you can start making your 12 cards. I will email you the calendar grid for your month and send you my mailing address. The sooner they get to me, the sooner you get your complete calendar back!!
